Prior to becoming an elementary school teacher, I was a pen & ink illustrator. Being a visual learner myself, it is very important that my classroom be pleasing to the eye, with information accessible to all levels of learners. I found that the original schedule art I created does just that.
Posting a clearly written and visually appealing schedule allows students to feel more in charge of their school days. In my third grade class, the schedule is the first thing children check out in the morning. They note activities and times, and feel a sense of comfort in the established routine. Specific visual supports benefit the entire class and lead to independence. Students feel less anxious, and they don't need to come to me in order to know what is going to happen next. Displaying a daily sequence of events is a concrete system that students are able to refer back to any time. I love providing a consistent and predictable learning environment in which children are able to thrive.
Each schedule icon and matching phrase is available in black & white, as well as full color. Each icon is 3 by 4 inches. The phrase box is approximately 1 by 5 inches.
I personally copy and laminate my schedule pieces and post them in one column each morning. I place them on the white board using blue painter's tape. In the next column, I write the times in dry erase marker. The third column is for the corresponding label, which I copy onto a light colored paper and laminate. Spare cards are clipped together and stored in a metal index card file box.
For students who need additional support, I reduce the icon size for individual daily charts. I highly recommend this for students with an autism spectrum disorder.
For $1, you are purchasing an electronic file with one original black & white schedule Counselor icon and one original color Counselor icon. The corresponding label is included.
You may also purchase the entire set of 33 original black & white schedule icons for $10, or the entire set of 33 original color schedule icons for $15.
Thank you for your interest! Please let me know if I can add to your schedule in any way.
